This quiz/worksheet combo will test your knowledge of the eccentric characteristics of planets and measure your understanding of them.

In these assessments, you will be quizzed on the following:

- What eccentricity measures
- Determining the eccentricity of a parabolic trajectory
- The most eccentric planet in its orbit

**Information recall -**access the knowledge you've gained regarding what eccentricity measures**Knowledge application -**use your knowledge to answer questions about determining the eccentricity of a parabolic trajectory**Interpreting information -**verify that you can read information regarding the most eccentric planet in its orbit and interpret it correctly.

To learn more about planets and their eccentricity, review the lesson called Eccentricity & Orbits of Planets. The lesson will cover the following areas:

- The definition of eccentricity
- Eccentricity of planets
- Formula for determining eccentricity
- Example calculation of a planet's eccentricity
